The London Evening- Port. Numb. 3721 From SATURDaY August 24, to TUESDAY August 27, yesterday arriv'd the Mail from France. Extract of a Letter from Cologn, Aug. 20. New Alteration has hap- pen'd at the Court of Bonn that makes no small Noise, which is, the Dismission of the Sieur Falckenberg. This, indeed, was foreseen by some; but it greatly surprizes those who know of what Utility his Genius has been to the Elector, in procuring that Prince Money in Times of Exigency. The Publick, in general, seems not to be concern'd at his Removal, and much less the People belonging to the Court, whose Wages, Pensions, See. he has caused to be more than once curtail'd and re- duced, to supply the Necessities of the Sovereign. This Event is a Confirmation that the Ministry is so thoroughly alter'd, that those who have been disgraced have little or no Hopes of being restored to their Em- pioyments. ' intrigues in Germany increase. The Election of a King of the Romans, which will soon be brought up- on the Carper, is the Cause thereof. Several Princes of the Germanick Body, who are not of Opinion that the Election should take Place in the Manner propos'd, are united, under Pretext of maintaining the funda- mental Constitutions of the Empire, of preventing any Deviation therefrom, and of adhering to the Tenor of the Treaty of Westphalia. A private Letter from Stockholm intimates, that there are two Parties in that Capital, one of which being much the most powerful, is accused of spread- ing false and scandalous Reports, in order to exaspe- ate the Nation against the Russians, not only in re- spect to the Fires which lately happen'd there, but also in regard to the injurious Designs of the Russian Court, and the Moderation which the Russian Minstry affects, is put on with no other View than to lull the Swedes into a Security, and prevent them from taking any vigorous Resolution at the approaching Diet. Hague, Aug. 24. There are still some Members of the State who insist upon a further Reduction of the Troops, and it is very likely that the Prince Stadtholder will have much Difficulty to ward off this Stroke, seeing he could not prevent the Province of Holland from sending home a Swiss Regiment whose Capitulation was finish'd, though their High Mightinesses have not now more than 36,000 Men in pay; but the Appropriation for Military Services falls greatly short, through the fre- quent Promotion of Officers. There is much Talk of strengthening the Alliance which has subsisted from the Origin of the Republick, between it and Great Britain : One of the Steps design'd to be taken for that Purpose is, it's said, to marry the Princess Caroline, Daughter of the Stadtholder, to the Prince of Wales. It's even assured, that this will be a Point of Deliberation of the extraordinary Assembly of the States of Holland, whose Consent and Approbation his Serene Highness will demand ; but it's believ'd they will not give it, without certain Restrictions, one of which, it's pretended, will be, that the Princess and her Consort shall be obliged to renounce, for themselves and their Descendants, all Right and Pretension, either to the Stadtholdership of Holland, or that of the Genera- lity. There will be great Debates upon this Point, wherein will be seen how much People's Sentiments are changed in three Years Time, tho' his Serene Highness has left nothing undone that might gain the Hearts of both High and Low ; but the Party of the Oligarchy is now again the strongest, and every Day gains Ground ; and that particularly appears by the Delays that are made in the re- establishing the Marine, which is in such a bad Condition, as to make one cry out, Quantum mu- tatus ab illo ! especially, When it's remember'd, that it has made Head against that of Great Britain united with that of France. Paris, Jug. 28. The Queen and the Diana arriv'd, a few Days ago, at Port l'Orient from the East- Indies: M. de la Touche is come over in the Diana, and brings a Confirmation of the Accounts we lately had by the Way of England, concerning the Successes of our Coun- trymen in India. According to the Relation which M. Dupleix has sent by the Sieur de la Touche, it ap- pears that the Nabob Narsinguen, Usurper of the King- dom of Golconda, not being dishearten'd at the Loss of Gingay, and other Repulses he had met with, assembled another powerful Army, in order to try his Fortune once more with the French ; which M. Dupleix being informed of, resolv'd to meet him at least Half- way, and therefore order'd the Sieur de la Touche to march against him from Gingy. The two Armies lay some Time four Leagues distant from one another, with a River between them which was not fordable: Bad Weather and Scar- city of Provisions also kept them inactive. At last the French decamp'd, and after a long and painful March found a Ford, cross'd the River, and came up in Sight of the Enemy. The Sieur de la Touche having made all the necessary Dispositions for an Engagement, gave the Command of the Center to M. Villeon, the Right Wing to M. Bussi, and the Left to M. Kerjean ; and on the jjth of December last gave the Signal for the Battle, which lasted four Hours, when the Enemy's Troops were broken on every Side, and fled with great Precipi- tation. While our Men were pursuing them, News was brought to M. de la TouChe that Narsinguen had been killed by two or three of his principal Officers, as fome say) and that his Nephew Moutafersingen, whom he had long kept in Confinement, was proclaim'd by the Army King of Golconda in his room; whereupon the French General order'd the Firing to cease, and imme- diately after a Herald came to our Camp from the new Nabob, or King, to acquaint M. de la Touche with his Change of Condition, and proposed Terms of Friendship and Alliance. This Victory does so much the more Honour to the French, as the Enemy were vastly superior in Number, being no less than 40,000 Foot, 45,000 Horse, and 700 Elephants, with 360 Pieces of Cannon; whereas our Army consisted of no more than 800 French Foot Soldiers, with 5oo Hoife, 3500 Cypayes, and only 20 Field Pieces. Mr. Dupleix's relation concludes with great Encomiums on the Conduct and Bravery of the Sieur de la Touche, and the other Officers that shared with him in the Glory of the Victory. _ SCOTLAND Edinburgh, aug. 9. On Monday Night last, between the Hours of Eleven and Twelve, Mrs. Margaret Home, Widow of Mr. Ninian Home, of Billy, was found at her Houfe of Linthill, near Eymouth, in her Bed, wel- tering in her Blood, her Throat cut, having several Wounds on her Hands, Face, and other Parts of her Body; and ' tis said that one Norman Ross, a Native of the Isle of Sky, her Man Servant, was the Perpetrator of this barbarous and inhuman Action. He was next Day apprehended among a Field of Corn, and brought before the Sheriff of Berwick, and on Examination he confess'd the Fact. Mrs. Home died on Friday Evening of her Wounds. A Justiciary Warrant is granted for bringing the said Ross from the Prison of Grinlay, in the Shire of Berwick, where he was committed, to this Place. Yesterday Morning died here Sir Harry Seaton, Bart. Last Thursday the City of Edinburgh's Plate was run for on the Sands of Leith, which was won by a grey Gelding belonging to the Hon. Francis Charteris, Esq; On Friday a Mare, call'd Highland Lassie, the Property of her Grace the Dutchess of Gordon, started alone for the Subscription Purse of Fifty Guineas. And on Saturday three run for the Town of Leith's Plate, and ( by some Mistake in the other two neglect- ing to turn a Post) the same was carried by a Bay ston'd Horse belonging to Mr. Charteris. After which four Horses started for a Collection of 1S 1- Sterling, 12 1. whereof was given to the first ( be- longing to John Sharp, Stabler) and 3 1. to the second. COUNTRY NEWS. Ipswich, Jug. 23. On Tuesday Nathaniel Gun, other- wise Watt Gun, a Smuggler, voluntarily surrender'd himself ( pursuant to a late Order of Council) to John Sparowe, Esq; one of his Majesty's Justices of the Peace for this County, and the same Day was committed to our Gaol. The Offence with which he is charg'd was committed in February 1746 ; since which, as we are well inform'd, he has carry'd on the Business of a Butcher at Hadleigh, with good Reputation and Suc- cess. He is said to be the first Smuggler that has sur- render'd himself in this County. Norwich, Jug. 24. Last Week the Rev. Mr. James Oldfield was instituted to the Rectory of Osmondiston, alias Scole, in Norfolk ; and at the same Time the Rev. Mr. Nicholas Wakeham was instituted to the Rectory of Brome in' Suffolk, being both presented by the Right Hon. Charles Lord Cornwallis. On Thursday last the Rev. Thomas Coxed was insti tuted to the Vicarage of Gooderston, in Norfolk, upon the Presentation of the Right Hon. the Lord Chancellor. Bristol, Aug. 24. Yesterday died, between Five and Six in the Morning, at Redland near this City, the Lady Wrey, after a lingering consumptive Illness, in which she had the Comfort however of being attended by a con- stantly affectionate Husband and a Conscience ever void of Offence.. She was the beloved Daughter and only surviving Child of John Edwards, of Highgate, Esq; and Wife of Sir Boucher Wrey, Bart. And tho' dead at the Age of Twenty- seven Years, had long enjoy'd the Sweets of a finely cultivated Understanding, and most charitable Disposition. With truly Christian Compo- sure, without a Symptom of Reluctance, she descended to her peaceful Grave ; and after having liv'd in the In- dulgence of a calm, chearful, domestick, and religious Turn of Mind, she may be truly said to have died the Death of the Righteous. On Wednesday last ended the Assizes for this City and County, when one Person receiv'd Sentence of Death, viz. Daniel Bishop, for the Murder of Winifred Jones, his Sweetheart, by violently assaulting her, and throw- ing her into the River, where she was drown'd. LONDON. We are informed that some Public spirited Members of a certain learned Body, have resolved to convert a Sum of Money given them for an annual Feast, into a PRIZE, to be bestowed on the Author of the best Dis- course on some useful Point of Enquiry in Practical Phi- losophy, that is, in the Knowledge of the Works of Nature, and how, conformable to the Divine Intention, they may be best adapted to the Good of Man. There is said to be a Scheme on Foot for redressing the Grievances complained of from the fending Felons, over into the Plantations, and, at the same Time, for render- ing them more serviceable to the Community; but in what Manner is not as yet publickly known. Some private Letters from Copenhagen mention their new Settlement on the Island of Majador, on the Coast of Africa, as the first Step towards the Execution of a new Plan, which it is thought will have a great Effect in extending the Trade of the People of Denmark. By a private Letter from Paris we hear, that one of the plodding Tribe, commonly call'd Projectors, has hit upon a Scheme that would effectually make up all Dif- ferences between the French King and his Parliament ; but he has met with the Fate of most Projectors, neither Thanks nor Reward for his Ingenuity: For having waited upon one of the Ministers, and in a few Words disclosed the Secret, which was, that seeing the Remon- strating Humour of the Parliament could not but be at- tended with some ill Consequences, as it lessen'd the Monarch in the Esteem of many of his subjects, which, of Course must needs weaken their Affection for him ; and since forty Legions were not sufficient to keep them in Awe, so as to prevent their Attendance now and then at Versailles with unwelcome Truths ; he therefore humbly proposes, that Pensions should be given to the major Part, or at least to, the leading Men among them. The Minister heard him very calmly, and dismiss'd him with this Remark on his Proposal, That simply consider'd it was unexceptionable; but an absolute Mo- narch could not in Honour stoop to it.

An Abstract of the Kings Royal Letters Patents granted to JOSEPH FRAUNCES, for the sole making and vending his FEMALE STRENGTHNING ELIXIR, GEORGE the Second, by the Grace of God, of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, & c. To all to whom these Presents shall come, greeting. Whereas JosEPH FRAUNCES, of Daventry in our Coun- ty of Northampton, Apothecary, hath, by his Petition, hum- bly represented unto us, That he hath, by long Study, great Application, and at a considerable Expence, invented, com- pleated, and brought to Perfection a new Chymical Prepara- tion, which he calls by the Name of The FEMALE STRENGTHNING ELIXIR, Which is extracted from the most powerful Parts of the Mate- ria Medica, and is a most excellent and almost infallible Rem- dy for the Fluor Albus in Women and in Men, an excellent Restorative, and a most efficacious Remedy in all Seminal Weaknesses and Debility of the Genital Parts, from whatso- ever Causes arising : That, in Constitutions worn down with long and tedious Illness, it will afford great Relief, by resto- ring the lost Spring of the Solids ; and that it raises the Spirits, removes Hysterical Complaints, and gives new Life and Vi- gour to the whole Body ; as many hundreds of our SubjeCts have already happily experienc'd.

And to the End, that the said JOSEPH FRAUnces, his Assigns, & c, may enjoy the full and sole Benefit, according to our gracious Intention, we do, by these Presents, for us and our Heirs, require, and striCtly command, all and every per- fon and Persons, Bodies Politick and Corporate, and all other our Subjects whatsoever, & c.

JOSEPH FRAUNCES For the VENEREAL DISEASE. THE shorteft, safe and regular, Care this Day in the World, from the slightest infeCtion. to the most inve- terate Degree of it, by a medicine as pleasant to take, and as easy in its Operation as it is effectual for a thorough cure; so yhat the unfor- tunate Patient gets suddenly and surprizingly well, without distaste to his Palate, the least Disorder of Body, or any Confinement whatever. This is that great Remedy, now so well known and long experienced to be truly infallible, and is the Grand ANTI SIPHYLICON that Radcliffe and Garth used to say would totally extirpate the Venereal Disease from the Face of the earth, were it but universally known, , and properly taken. Fresh Infections, call'd Claps, with all their 1 Cruel attendant Symptoms, it presently cures and if taken in time, even prevents their taking Place. It is a safe, gentle, and pleasant Family Purge, even tor Children as will as grown Persons, in all Cases where Purging is necessary; nor can the deepest Scurvy, rheu- matism, Gout, evil or Leprosy, stand before it, but are pleasantly cured and thoroughly extirpated by it, as well as the highest and most inveterate State of the confirm'd Venereal disease, which, with all it, most raging Symptoms, it soon eradicate , restoring Heahh, Strength, and Vigour to the Body. Those who once take it, will never have re- course to any thing else. One Pot in most Cases, is sufficient tor a Cure, and can now be had only at Mr. Eglinton's ( Mr. Radford being de- ceas'd) at the Golden Pair of Spectacles against the east end of the New Church in the Strand, London, at 6s. a Pot, seal'd up with a look of Instructions, by which all Persons may fully understand their own Condition, and certainly know when, and when not, the vene- real Poyson is rooted out of their Bodies. Note, Ask only for a Six shilling Pot for the Scurvey. No letters answer'd unless Post- paid. The so much Fam'd Hypo DROPS, WHICH in a few Days infallibly cure HYPOCHONDRIACS MelANCHOLY in MEN, and the VAPOUrS in wOMeN, after all other Remedies have prov'd ineffectual ; and that by immediately striking at the very Root or true Cause, as well as remedying the Effects of these perplex- ing Maladies and all their Variety of Symptoms, by which they mi- mick, by turns, almost all the Diseases poor Mortals are afflicted with, and have their Rise from a depraved Appetite, vitious Ferment in the Stomach, and Indigestion of Food, whence proceed Crudities, and flatulent or windy Disorders in the first Passages, four Belch- ings, Cholick, uneasiness in the Bowels, and ill Fumes; which offend the Nerves, and, by Consent of Parts, affect the Head, and pro- duce sometimes Giddiness, dimness of Sight confused Thoughts , pertinacious Watchings, troublesome Sleep, frights, groundless Fears, and the deepest melancholy, with direful Views, and terrible Appre- hensions; at other Times Fits, Flushing Heats, Reachings, Faintness, Lowness and Sinking of Spirits, Palpitation of the Heart, Starting, Tremblings, and Twitchings in the limbs aud other Parts, with many convulsive disorders, sharp Pains, fix'd or wandering, Pains and weakness in the Back, and other, almost innumerable and grie- vous Symptoms, which miserably afflict vast Numbers 0f both Sexes. All which Symptoms, u their sharpest Paroxysms, these so much fam'd and most pleasant Drops, instantly quell, and at the same time annihilate their real Cause. Certain it is that n0 Medicine upon earth can equal them; be careful therefore to have the right Drops, which are to be had only at Mrs. Holt's, it the Cross- Keys and Star below the Royal- exchange in Cornhill, London, at 3s, c i. a Bottle, with printed directions L LONDON. Last Friday his Majesty was pleased to appoint Capt. Gisborne, Major to the Earl of Loudon's Regiment, in the Room of Major Harward, deceas'd, and Capt. Rich, on the Half- Pay, to the vacant Company in the said Regiment. Miss Powers is appointed one of the Maids of Honour to her Royal Highness the Princess Augusta. By Letters from Bengal we are inform'd, that Samuel Hyland, Esq; a very eminent Merchant, died there late- ly ; a Gentleman of most extensive Knowledge in his Business. Last Friday Night died, at his House at Dalston, Jo- nathan Collyer, Esq; one of the Directors of the South- Sea Company. • On Saturday last died, at his House in Goodman's Fields, Mr. Brett, an eminent Sugar- Baker. He hap- pen'd to walk Home from Tottenham on Sunday was se'nnight in the Rain, and not shifting his Cloaths as soon as he should, caught Cold, which bringing on a Fever occasion'd his Death. A Dispensation has pass'd the Great Seal to enable the Rev. Mr. Henry Toundrow, to hold the Rectory of Cavendish, in the County of Suffolk and Diocese of Norwich, together with the Rectory of Otton Bel- champ, in the County of Essex and Diocese of London. Last Sunday Morning, about Six o'Clock, two old Houses in Middle- Street, Cloth- Fair, West Smithfield, fell down; but as they had been uninhabited for six Months, happily no other Damage ensued. Last Saturday as one Ralph, upwards of sixty Years of Age, Labourer to Bricklayer, was cleaning a Gutter in Doctors Commons, he fell from the same, broke one of his Legs, fractur'd his Skull, and died on the Spot. Last Saturday Evening a Woman was taken out of a pond at Mary- le- bon, and carried to the Queen's Head Alehouse there, and being warm, the proper Means were used for her Recovery, but to no Purpose. She was middle- aged, was dress'd in a brown Camblet Gown, faced and robed with green Silk, and in her Pocket was found a Guinea,, four Shillings and a Half- penny. Yesterday two Soldiers were tried for Desertion, at the Judge Advocate's in Privy- Garden ; one of whom was sentenced to be shot, and the other is to be sent abroad. Last Saturday Evening Thomas Lediard, Esq; com- mitted a Girl of ten Years of Age to the Gatehouse, for being concerned in letting a Man and a Woman into a Gentleman's House in which she liv'd, to rob the said House, which they effected, and stole thereout Wearing Apparel, & c. to a considerable Value. What makes her Crime the worse is, that she was in the most wretched . Condition, was taken out of Charity, and used extreme- ly well. The Man is since apprehended, and committed to Tothill fields Bridewell. Last Saturday Night the Felons confined in the New- Gaol, Southwark, attempted a third Time to make their Escapes, but were defeated by the Vigilance of the Keeper's Servants. Notwithstanding there is a strong Watch, they found means to unscrew the Bed screws in the Beds wheie they lay, and filed them into Punches to strike out the Rivets in their Irons; they had wrench'd up two large Planks, by which they got into the Ground Floor of the Gaol, and had undermined the main Wall more than three Feet. The Execution of the five Malefactors mention'd in our former, we hear will be To- morrow se'nnight at Kennington- Common. The Order for hanging Welch and Jones in Chains was sent on. Friday Night to the New- Gaol, ordering them to be hang'd up at Brixton Causeway ( near the Wash- Way) immediately after their Execution. On Friday last, about Ten in the Morning, Thomas Colley, condemn'd for the Murder of Ruth Osborne, as a supposed Witch, receiv'd the Sacrament at Hertford, administer'd to him by the Rev. Mr. Edward Bouchier, when he sign'd a solemn Declaration of his Faith rela- ting to Witchcraft; which he desir'd might be carry'd to the Place of Execution, and was there publickly read, at his earnest Request, just before he was turn'd off, by the Rev. Mr. Randall, Minister of Tring, who attended him in his last Moments. He was escorted by 1o8 Men belonging to the Regiment of Horse Blue, with their Officers, and two Trumpets; and the Procession was slow, solemn, and moving. Friday Night he was lodg'd in St. Alban's Gaol; and at Five the next Morn- ing was put into a One- Horse Chaise, with the Execu- tioner, and came to the Place of Execution about Eleven, and after half an Hour spent in Prayer he was executed, and immediately after hung up in Chains on the same gibbet he was hang'd on. The Infatuation of the greatest Part of the People in that Part of the Country was such, that they would not be seen near the Place of Execution, insisting, that it was a hard Case to hang a Man for destroying an old wicked Weman that had done so much Damage by her Witchcraft. A very odd Accident happen'd in the Middle of Tring Town ; which was, that just as the Prisoner's Wife and Daughter were permitted to speak to him, one of the Troopers Pistols in his Holsters went off, occasion'd by his Handkerchief accidentally getting into the Holster, which he pulling out, drew the Trigger, and the Ball went into the Ground ; but no other Damage ensued than putting the Corps in some Disorder, it being at first imagined to have been fired out of a Window. last Sunday the Purser of the Norfolk, Capt. Na- thaniel Hancock, arriv'd at the India House, with News of the said Ship's Arrival off the Coast of Suffolk on Friday last, from Bencoolen. She left at St. Helena the Ilchester, Capt. Tedd, from Persia and Bombay, who was to sail in four Days after the above Ship, and the Warren, Capt. Glover, who was to sail in about eight Days. And Yesterday it was confidently reported about Change- Alley, that the new Nabob of Golconda, set up by M. Dupleix, was kill'd fome Weeks after by some Conspi- rators; whereby all the towering Projects of the French Governor- General are vanished in Smoke. It is said this Account has been brought by the Norfolk Indiaman, and it is hoped we may in a Post or two have a Confir- mation of it from France: In the mean Time it has had a very good Effect in raising drooping Stock. Last Night between Eight and Nine o'Clock the Pur- ser of the Grantham arriv'd at the East- India House, with an Account of the said Ship being safe arriv'd from China. Extract of a Letter from an Officer at St. Philips, July 14. ' On the first of May we saiL'd on board of Commo- dore Keppel's Ship for Algiers, where we staid near five Weeks, and Mr. Keppel had the Happiness of finishing the Affairs he went upon to his Satisfaction, and gave the King's Prefents. At the two publick Audiences at arriving and taking Leave, we all at- tended his Excellency the Commodore, and drink Coffee with the Dey: The other Days the Commodore went only attended by his Druggermen, and while he was employed for the publick Good, we made Excur- sions into the Country: The Turks behav'd with great Civility to us, and, notwithstanding the Num- ber of Sailors, not one Riot or Complaint happen'd during our Stay. There were 15 Spanish Officers Slaves there, and upon the Spanish Monarch's refusing to let a Turkish Officer be redeemed, and giving them- selves little Trouble about redeeming their own Offi- cers, those poor Gentlemen, who had at first been very well treated, were put to Work, and the Day we went on board were yok'd like Beasts; to Stone Carts, several of them old Captains, and one Colonel past 70.' The Marygold, Capt. Cheeseman, from Turk's- Island for South Carolina, was lately lost in her Passage; her People were all saved. The Providence, Andrews, from Bilboa bound to Chefter, was lost between Port Louis and Brest. Part of the Cargo is sav'd, but the Captain and his Brother are drown'd.

IT is currently reported, that Orders have been sent to the Governors of Riga, Revel and other Fron- tier Towns, to receive in the most civil Manner all Foreign Officers that may come to them, if they shew any Inclination to enter into the Empress's Service. Petersburg, Aug. 15. The 8th Instant an unlucky Af- fair happen'd between the Body of Cadets and the Guard posted on the Bridge of the Neva. Two of the Cadets going over the Bridge, the Guard demanded of them the Toll paid by all Foot Passengers; to which they made Answer, that the Cadets were utter Strangers to such Tax, and did not mean to pay it. Upon their Re- fusal they were taken into Cuftody ; but the News had no sooner reach'd the Cadets Hotel or College, than these boiling Youths, who are of the best Families in the Em- pire, ran to Arms, and came with all Speed to the Bridge, to release their two Comrades! They charg'd the Guards so vigorously, that they would certainly have put them to Flight, had it not been for a Rein- forcement that came up from the Admiralty; but this Reinforcement, far from daunting the Cadets, rather whetted their Courage, they attack'd the Corps sent from the Admiralty with the same Intrepedity that they had done the Bridge Guard ;. the Engagement was pretty sharp, but the Cadets at last gave Way to their Antago- nists Superiority. No Lives were lost in this bloody Fray, but a great Number wounded on both Sides. Some Soldiers have been confined for this Affair, and such of the Cadets as were most forward to set bad Ex- ample, have also been put under Arrest. Hambourg, Aug. 27. By the last Letters from Con- stantinople, we hear the Pestilenee rages there to such a Degree, that it daily sweeps away upwards of icoo Souls. Berlin, Aug. 28. The 25th Instant, at Six in the Morning, the King, accompanied by the Prince of Prus- sia, set out for Silesia, and in the Afternoon his Ma- jesty was follow'd by the Princes Henry and Ferdinand, Field Marshal Prince Leopold of Anhalt Dessau, the Duke of Brunswick- Bevern, Governor of Stetin, Lieu- tenant General Prince Maurice of Anhalt Dessau, and many other great Officers. The Troops in Silesia are to form a Camp at Neustadt. Before the King set out he appointed Lord Marshal, Brother of Field- Marshal Keith, his Minister Plenipo- tentiary to the Court of France, with a Salary of 10,000 Crowns, besides 6000 for Travelling Charges : His Ma- jesty has also created him a Knight of the Order of the Black Eagle ; and this Day he sets out for Paris. Amsterdam, Sept. 3. We have receiv'd Letters from dif- ferent Hands which all agree that the Emperor of Mo- rocco has ceded to the King of Denmark the Ports of Saffia and Santa Croce, for ihe Sum of 70,090 Ducats, besides a Retribution of divers Kinds of Warlike Stores, pursuaut to a Treaty concluded between them ; the Par- ticulars of which are daily expeded.
